Being commercial

… given that I probably wouldn’t be writing this blog if I weren’t paid by my employer, I don’t feel to bad about mentioning our Summit…

I get paid*.  By Red Hat.  Not to write these blog posts, but to do a job of work.  The musings which make up this blog aren’t necessarily directly connected to the views of my employer (see standard disclaimer), but given that I try to conduct my work with integrity and to blog about stuff I believe in, there’s a pretty good correlation**.

Anyway, given that I probably wouldn’t be writing this blog if I weren’t paid by my employer, I don’t feel to bad about mentioning our Summit this week.  It’s my first one, and I’m involved in two sessions: one on moving to a hybrid (or multi-) cloud model, and one about the importance of systems security and what impact Open Source has on it (and vice versa).  There’s going to be a lot of security-related content, presented by some fantastic colleagues, partners and customers, and, depending on quite how busy things are, I’m hoping to post snippets here.

In the meantime, I’d like to invite anybody who reads this blog and will be attending the Red Hat Summit to get in touch – it would be great to meet you.

 


*which is, in my view, a Good Thing[tm].
